Ms. Ying Li, the artistic director of Phoenix Chinese Dance Academy, combines Chinese dance with ancient poetry, leading to the birth of “Poetry in the Seasons”. This performance not only debuts beautiful dances choreographed by Ms. Li, but also showcases a number of excellent Chinese dance repertoires. We will take you on a poetic journey through the four seasons to experience the movements of beauty, and explore the meaning of life.
